Earlier today, the Inspired By Elle Facebook page, hit a mammoth 60,000 likes. I know I say it each time, that we reach a milestone but it is like a never-ending story as the social media following of my art and poetry increases. It is important, very important in fact, as it signals that I am heading in the right direction. It is also for me humbling that I can hold the attention of so many people, and that they like what I am about and what I do.
First time experiences offer priceless memories, which often shape the person you are and guide you through life. Reflection of these situations allows us to improve our behaviours in the future, and affords us the opportunity to share with others for mutual benefit.
Often these memories can inspire us at times of low mood, or where our life takes an intersection; giving us the knowledge of how to manage difficulties or emotional changes. The sharing of these experiences is a brilliant learning tool for children and peers as they navigate their own lives.
